Katie is an inspiring and encouraging teacher.
I have been learning the piano with Katie for two years as an adult student. She has paced my learning exactly to suit my ability so that I have been able to learn to play the piano with enjoyment and competence and integrate that learning each week. It is fun to learn to play the piano with Katie.
I fully recommend her to adult beginners like myself.

I am so happy to have found Katie Dean's Piano Studio! I thought at 61 I was too old to learn piano and i wasn't a 'musical' person. Katie changed all that for me! She understands the unique needs of each student, and is always friendly, helpful and professional. I couldn't ask for a better teacher, and my friends who study with Katie agree wholeheartedly.

I absolutely love Katie classes; she makes me feel capable to learn piano even now after my 40ths!

Katie is a patient and kind teacher. The Simply Music method has been a great way to introduce my daughter to the piano and she loves going to her lesson each week. Thank you, Katie!
Sally, parent of student
Katie is an incredible teacher. My son started lessons with her only a few years ago, and with Katie's guidance, patience and support has found a real passion for piano. I would highly recommend her to any parent, or adult student wishing to start learning the piano late and still thrive! Thank you, Katie,
we adore you!

The group sessions are brilliant for conditioning against stage freight. My boy will happily have a go when he see’s a piano.

Katie is an excellent teacher. My son has been going to Katie for lessons now for about 5 - 6 years now. She is very patient with him as has some challenges. My son loves going to Katie because she makes him feel comfortable and lets him be himself while she is teaching him. He always comes out of his lessons with a smile on his face. I would definitely recommend Katie to everyone.

I have enjoyed the last 3 years of learning to play the piano with Katie Dean. She is patient and encouraging and gives lots of practical tips that make a difference to my practice. Can thoroughly recommend having lessons with Katie.

Working with Katie and using the Simply Music method has been so awesome. We went from having one child, to enrolling a second in the class because of the sheer enjoyment and sense of achievement that may kids have experienced.
Becky, parent of students
My daughter loves going to her lessons. It is always positive and encouraging to see her want to practice piano. Thanks Katie.

George love learning with Katie! Every lesson there’s something new for him to try and whenever he sees a piano, no matter where it is, he wants to play it!
parent of student
I’ve recommended Katie to many friends. I love the way the kids are learning to love music and be creative from the beginning. I took lessons as a child and it never occurred to me I could compose a song myself! I also love the way kids become accustomed to performing at a small scale, and Katie’s caring, competent manner.
